We spotted this 1960s Morris & Steedman-designed four-bedroom house in Ravelston, Edinburgh, Midlothian last year, after which it seemed to disappear from the market. Now it’s back on with a slightly reduced asking price (and via a different agent).
It’s a B-listed semi-detached property, designed and built by award winning architects, Morris & Steedman in 1963 and sat in what are described as ‘beautifully landscaped grounds’. It’s also a house very much with modernism at its heart and with panoramic picture windows in every room, so plenty of natural light – more than you might expect.
The house has been updated (and we think extended) over the years, but this is still pretty much faithful to the original design and with original features to match, from the extensive wood panelling to the open plan reception space and what’s described as ‘free flowing family accommodation’. You just need to add your own twist to the decor and fittings.
In terms of the layout, the house offers a drawing room and dining room, a sitting room/study, a ‘luxury’ kitchen with Aga, a utility room and a cloakroom. There’s also a master bedroom with en-suite, three further bedrooms, a family bathroom and an additional shower room.
Outside space includes mature trees, a driveway with private parking and a south west facing garden. Also, if you’re wondering, all fitted carpets, light fittings, integrated kitchen appliances, Aga, free-standing kitchen and utility appliances and (if it’s a deal breaker) two garden sheds are included in the sale.
Offers over £850,000 if you want to be the new owner.
